I am a licensed professional counselor in Arkansas with over 16 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I work with clients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, anger management, and stress management. I have worked with people of all ages in various settings, including acute care, outpatient, intensive outpatient, school-based, college, and residential care.

My counseling style is collaborative and client-centered. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion and will encourage you to do the work to reach your personal goals. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, motivational interviewing, coaching, and reality therapy techniques. I will tailor our dialogue and your treatment plan to meet your unique needs.

It takes courage to seek and work towards a more fulfilling and happier life. Change can be tough, but you don't have to do it alone. If you are ready to seek positive change, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written on Nov 17, 2021 after therapy with Vanessa for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, anger management, and career difficulties

I have been having sessions with Vanessa for about 6 months now and I look forward to them weekly. I’m going through lots of transitions in life and she gives the right amount of balance between listening and then offering steps to help solve what I may see as insurmountable problems. It’s good to have an ear to listen and someone who can also help you sort through your thoughts and emotions. She’s the best.
